The next Ka Lahui Hawaii meeting is on June 4, 2016, from 10:30am – 2:30pm at Hale Ponoi, DHHL, 91-5420 Kapolei Parkway, Kapolei, Hawaii 96707.
Citizens are working on projects including citizen engagement, finalization of the enrollment form, and preparation for education.
Kawika Nahoopii and his education team had an information table at the Aha Aloha Aina held at the Waianae District Park on March 19 and it went very well. Kawika reported that lots of people were glad to see Ka Lahui Hawaii active again. Many wanted to check if they were still registered and Kawika got some updated contact info. He also shared that people were appreciative and proud to be Ka Lahui Hawaii citizens.
Healani Sonoda-Pale traveled to Washington, DC, to present concerns in writing to the US Department of Interior. She carried a three-page letter under Protest Nai Aupuni’s letterhead. The video of her experience may be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QOw4NLSUukE
Previous kiaaina and TV show host Mililani Trask invited Healani and Lehua Kinilau to speak on this month’s “First Friday” show. If you missed it, tune in to OLELO-TV Oceanic Cable Channel 53. “First Friday” is scheduled to re-air at 7 p.m. on Friday, April 8, 15, 22, and 29. Please check program listings.
The meeting planned for May 7 will be after the Hawaii State legislative session adjourns, so a report will be provided. We’ve discussed a large gathering for the summer or fall, which requires continued engagement and outreach.

The “Constitution of Ka Lahui Hawaii” may be viewed by clicking on the tab in the menu bar and following instructions to the link. The Constitution was originally published in 1993 on newsprint stock.
It is a long document, and the upload may take a few moments depending on your internet connection speed. It is best viewed with the browser Firefox. See sidebar at right.
Mahalo to the authors of the Constitution and the Ka Lahui citizens who made this publication possible.
